England won the toss and decided to field at The Grange, Edinburgh, in this one off ODI against Scotland today.

Scotland  371-5  (Calum MacLeod 140*, Kyle Coetzer 58, George Munsey 55, Matthew Cross 48, Richard Berrington 39; Adil Rashid 2-72)

England 365 (Jonny Bairstow 105, Alex Hales 52;Mark Watt 3-55 )

 

Skipper Kyle Coetzer 58, Calum MacLeod 140* (94 balls 16x4s and 3x6s) George Munsey 55, Matthew Cross 48 and Richard Berrington 39, all contributed to a record ODI total of  371-5, off their allotted 50 overs, for Scotland. The batting was brilliant and the England bowlers had little answer to Scotland batsmen, as they piled on the agony. Adil Rashid 2-72 was the pick of the England bowlers.

In reply, England got off to a fantastic start with a Jonny Bairstow hundred - 105 (59 balls, 12x4s and 6x6s) but the Scotland bowlers and fielders kept on at England and eventually England were all out for 365 and a historic victory for Scotland by 6 runs.Mark Watt 3-55 was the pick of the Scotland bowlers.

A wonderful result for Scotland and a wonderful result for International Cricket!
